Friday, March 13 –

Plan to attend one of the South’s best festivals that is a not to be missed Savannah tradition – the Festival of St. Patrick. This event is one of the very best waterfront street parties ever thrown.

The Festival of St. Patrick features live music across five stages – 3 on the waterfront and 2 in City Market – along with food, beverages and a variety of activities.  In 2020 the Festival of St. Patrick will start Friday, March 13th at 6:00pm and last until Sunday, March 15th at 6:00pm. 

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade will start on Tuesday, March 17th at 10:15am. Because this year’s parade falls on a Tuesday, the festival and parade will be separated by one day. Be sure to visit restaurants and bars along Savannah’s Waterfront and in City Market after the parade. There will not be a street party on Tuesday, March 17th.

For more information about the parade, please visit the Savannah St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee’s official website.
